Bonne bière avec des notes douce et sucré de framboise, une bonne acidité en bouche, des notes de chênes bien présente et en fin de bouche des notes très légère de torréfié

Vintage 2020. Turbid, garnet beer with oppressed carbonation displays a small-bubbled head that elevates up to half a finger. Retention evaporates hastily and leaves a hair-thin lace ring hovering on the surface. The scent combines blackberry and raspberry and obviously also boysenberry into one juicy cocktail. The olfactory identity is not as sour as I expect but definitely not sweet either. The taste profile is deeply sour and a bit acidic: blackberry dominates over raspberry. Their combined effect is like sour boysenberry. Additionally, I get modest blueberry, hefty wheat malt and a yeasty idea. The body is light. The finish pushes the berry-rich palette forward and offers an acidic sensation for the tastebuds for a longer period. The mouthfeel is light, tart, puckering, acidic, juicy and rich in berries. I would certainly welcome more complexity, now this offers basically no layers at all.

Beer 3/4. Portrays limpid, copper. An off-white, dense moussy head exceeds easily one finger. Long retention keeps the lacing alive for quite some time. The nose receives caramel, fermented plum and a whisper of strawberry, accompanied by a hint of marshmallow. Overall, restrained but unique. The flavor medley is sour and internally conflictual: Earl Grey tea, blackcurrant leaf and sour orange peel. You see what I mean? Do I also detect a bit of passionfruit, not very juicy though? The body is light also here. The finish continues as unguided as before. Like I said, the cocktail is conflictual, as if the elements didn't play well together. On the other hand, this is adventurous and different from most of earlier experiences. The mouthfeel is light, tart, puckering, modestly vinous, barrel aged and courageous. Tasty but still not a bomb.

One more À Tue-Tête! I saved this one last because I think it's the most interesting one. We'll see. The beer displays a turbid, dark garnet hue. Shy carbonation pulls up a soft white head that has basically no bubbles at all, just dense moussy texture. The foam expands one finger thick and descends gradually and kisses the rim tightly. Sour plum settles down timidly on a wheaty bed. Very straightforward and plain, I can't get anything else than that. The taste identity includes loads of sour damson and a reasonable injection of wheat malt. Accompaniments include sour plum, a whisper of purple gooseberry and a silent sigh of blackberry. The surprising characteristic is that the name suggests plum, which is normally sweeter, but I actually find astringent damson in the gustatory profile. Otherwise, the flavors of plum and damson are, of course, very close to each other. The body ranges between light and light-medium. The finish lifts the wheat up a little and enters yeast. Astringency continues, even intensifies moderately. Like chewing damson skin. The aftertaste can't help grinding its teeth until they lose all the dental enamel. The mouthfeel is somewhat light, quite tart, puckering, astringent, relatively acidic and dry. It's also drying but not as much as I anticipated. Maybe distant funkiness can also be observed. Doesn't quite beat "Pêche Abricot 2020" due to its layeredness but still ranks high in the Fruited Sour Ale universe. My 150th 🇨🇭.

Another one from À Tue-Tête! Let's keep fingers crossed that this is more inspiring. The beer colors relatively cloudy, amber. Shy carbonation creates a subdued white head that maintains longer as a modest ring on the surface. Later I can see some yeast particles sunk at the bottom. The scent gives immediately some stone fruits, such as peach, apricot and a bit of mango. The wheaty backbone is not particularly supportive but keeps the package together. The taste profile is nice: sour peach, nectarine and apricot form a uniform medley that plays well together. Further down the line, I pick tiny amendments of green grape, orange pulp, bitter orange peel and mango. Intriguing as this offers some varying dimensions. The body is light, or light plus. The finish drops a few fruits on the road but rolls over the key stone fruits to the end. The aftertaste plays ducks and drakes and smiles for this childhood activity. The mouthfeel is light, medium-tart, puckering, acidic, as a matter of fact more acidic than "Cerise 2020", and zesty. Even moderately funky. 🧡🧡 (The covid pass requirement picture is a memory of this strange time.)

Murky, deep burgundy beer with reserved carbonation unleashes a white-pinkish lace ring that doesn't even spread entirely on the surface. However, a gossamer ring still wafts on the top for long. Sour cherry punches arrogantly against my tastebuds. In addition, I can find a bit of lingonberry mash and even a suggestion of lingonberry jam in the scent. Sour cherry whirls with wheat malt on the tongue. Cranberry substitutes for lingonberry but is really restrained. Simple as a whole. The body is light, which is not up to the level of 7 %. The finish pours loads of sour cherry, so nothing changes. The aftertaste pits cherries for such a long time that is fingers are sore. The mouthfeel is light, tart, puckering and faintly acidic. On one hand, the taste profile is intense, on the other, it's flat and powerless. Simple for sure. I've learned to know À Tue-Tête! especially for its Sour Ales but this is just average at best.

The beer is muddy amber. Long-lasting carbonation releases first an airy head that burgeons one finger thick but dissipates hastily to a mediocre lace ring. Elderflower is identifiable to the nose. Wheat malt supports the floral fragrance decently. A bit of rhubarb escorts the twin components in a distance. The taste identity is undoubtedly sour. I find hefty wheat malt that is somewhat stuffy but actually not closed at all. I wouldn't call this fresh either but the reasonable sourness leaves a classy well-matured impression. Elderflower works beautifully in the taste. Other parameters that I wish to include in the list are grapefruit zest, lemon pith, passionfruit, a pinch of rhubarb and remote whitecurrant. Yeast goes boldly forward. Nevertheless, there's no farmhousey twist at all in this beer. The body is light-medium to medium. The finish is citrusy, passionfruity, floral, wheaty and a tad yeasty. Marginally sourer than upfront. The aftertaste gets covered by thousands of elderflower petals and harassed by a pail. The mouthfeel is stuffy, tart, acidic, springlike. Subtle, floral, fragrant and elegant, as well, would merit much slower enjoyment than now...
